    Investigators Seek Boston Bombing Suspect’s Laptop

    snipped

    BOSTON — The search for evidence in the Boston Marathon bombings sent white-suited investigators combing through the garbage at a landfill in New Bedford, Mass., on Thursday as they hunted for a laptop computer belonging to one of the suspects, a law enforcement official said.

    snipped

    ...Contrary to initial reports that the police had “exchanged” gunfire with the suspect, the official said it appeared that police officers surrounding the boat had apparently fired into it after they saw something push through the boat’s tarp, and feared it might be an explosive device or a gun.

    “One officer then fired,” the law enforcement official said. “The other officers there, hearing a shot going off, thought it was coming from the suspect and started shooting until the cease-fire was ordered.”

    Here's the thing for me: Russia's Federal Security Service asked the FBI to look into Tamerlan Tsarnaev back in 2011. From this article:

    The FBI opened an investigation of Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 at the behest of Russian officials who expressed concern that he was becoming radicalized and could be planning an attack in Russia.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/world...d426de-addb-11e2-8bf6-e70cb6ae066e_story.html

    What I want to know is why Russian officials were concerned back in 2011 that Tamerlan was becoming radicalized & could have been planning an attack in Russia?

    Putin may or not be posturing now, but I'm curious as to why Tamerlan was in Russia's crosshairs 2 years ago. I think there's much more to this backstory on Tamerlan & his family. Hopefully, trustworthy information will come out soon, explaining why Russia was suspicious of Tamerlan. He attracted their attention for a reason, IMO.

    As it turns out, their concerns weren't unfounded, except that the terrorist attack occurred on US soil, and not Russian soil.

    Here is another link:
    http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2013/04/west_new_york_woman_identifyin.html
    "The FBI, members of NYPD and West New York PD and the Joint Terrorist Task Force surround the apartment building of Alina Tsarnaeva, sister of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers, in West New York, NJ, on Thursday, April 18, 2013. (Frances Micklow/The Star-Ledger) "

    "A few minutes after 11 a.m., at least a dozen FBI agents arrived at the apartment building and created a perimeter around it. They entered the building after a few minutes. At about 12:30 p.m. agents left with a computer and other electronics."

    Here is what Napolitano said:.

    Napolitano said that even though Tsarnaev's name was misspelled, redundancies in the system allowed his departure to be captured by U.S. authorities in January 2012. But she said that by the time he came back six months later, an FBI alert on him had expired and so his re-entry was not noted.

    "The system pinged when he was leaving the United States. By the time he returned all investigations had been closed," Napolitano said.

    Apparently, Tamerlan's departure was noted, but that his return was not, since the FBI alert on him had expired.

    Yeah, thanks. It is who I was thinking of. I thought I remembered FBI taking her computer! We did discuss this. She was quite upset & embarrassed it seemed to be caught up in this. She was upset about her brothers being suspects and the devastation they caused. At least from what I remember...

    Too many links to terrorist activity to be benign. He has to be involved with some other group. How many lone terrorist are there that are so radicalized, travel to areas of terrorism, twice removed from other terrorists, etc?? Not just some lone nut job

    A possible terrorist flag should never expire wth. Especially when returning to the US from a area with involved terrorists. :banghead:

    This case has shown there are holes in the system and they have been exposed...hopefully, government will plug/correct these gaps before something happens again.

    They have not released the video, I got the feeling it's a dash board cam type thing. I'm sure it's out of respect to the fallen officer and also like the video of #2 setting down his backpack it's being held as evidence

    Why was he admitted? What illness or accident?

    No idea. Not sure if he was admitted or if he was just taken there via ambulance to be looked at by a med dr. Wish we knew more. Maybe it could be from the stress of hearing his boys are involved in the bombings.

    I have to agree. And naturally I am now wondering if the train plot is connected OR if Murderer #1 has had contact with the train people before.

    Will we ever get real answers? I wonder about that, too.

    And frankly, whatever info DT gives about Times Square or whatever other plans they had....I'd take with 100 grains of salt because he has no incentive to tell the truth and this story could be a diversion from something else that's going to happen.

    Suddenly, I have a song stuck in my head: Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet with Butterfly Wings - "Rat in a Cage."

    Wonder if this family is beginning to feel like there is nowhere left to hide?

    “I’m not sure if we have any witnesses,” Cambridge police spokesman Dan Riviello said. “There was a surveillance camera at MIT that captured some information.”

    The footage from that camera shows the Tsarnaev brothers approaching Collier’s cruiser from behind, he said. Police assigned to investigate Collier’s death have not interviewed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, he said.
